Kidney for Yulia

Campaign Created by: Emily Grace

The funds from this campaign will be received by Chrissy Hicks.

Goal: USD $500,000

     Duke University Hospital REFUSED to conduct Yulia's kidney transplant surgery because she is not vaccinated. A horrible injustice in itself, now the Hick's family must pay for out-of-state travel and lodging expenses for not only Yulia and her mother, but also her potential donor! The transplant process is not easy nor quick. Between the numerous pre-surgery tests, the procedure itself, recovery and the years of regular appointments, the whole endeavor is now financially IMPOSSIBLE for the large Hicks family. 

     The Hicks family adopted Yulia from the Ukraine in January of 2021 knowing that she had a genetic kidney condition that would eventually require surgery. She fit in right away with Lee and Chrissy's 10 other children, 2 of which are also adopted. 14 year old Yulia (pictured center) is outgoing and always positive despite the hardships in her life, to include the last 15 months of DAILY dialysis. Please help save Yulia's life by making her surgery possible. For the sake of Christ crucified, donate what you can to this wonderful family that has done so much good for others.

We have made progress towards identifying a hospital in Florida. We should know soon. Once that has been done, we will email potential donors the link to get started. 

Yulia is doing well. She is excited to celebrate the birth of Jesus! 

May God bless you all richly this Christmas season!

It has been a crazy day! Alex Berenson cracked this open, and we are so grateful to him! We have been contacted by many other outlets. 

Tonight we retained a lawyer to help us fight Duke and praying we can change the policy for others. 

We increased the amount we are trying to raise because we know we will have legal fees, and we don't know the extent of our bills for travel, etc as we will likely be going out of state for transplant. 

We are hoping by Friday, we will have a medical center identified so we can have potential donors get tested. 

We are overwhelmed by the generosity we have been shown. Our God is great! He will not abandon us. 

"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me." Psalm 23, verse 4.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY! Lee and Chrissy Hicks
